In the year 2016, a catastrophic incident at the Odaiba nuclear power plant contaminated the city with radiation and turned Tokyo into a ghost town devoid of life. 20 years later, Japan still struggles with the environmental consequences of that fateful day, and actively looks for survivors using Coppelions: genetically-engineered, radiation-resistant girls who scour the streets when SOS calls occur. With military support and funding to back them up, these young ladies continue to explore Tokyo and discover just who, and what, managed to survive.
Both these anime are about cute girls trying to save a post apocalyptic world by slowly restoring order. Both these anime preach about redemption and resisting the temptation to give into despair.
Coppelion has more of a sci-fi setting, feautres a lot more action and uses technobable to explain it's more fantastical elements. Whereas Sunday Without God has a fantasy setting with slower pacing and includes magic. However, despite these differences the anime share the same tone and put on emphasis on the relationships between the characters.
Both these anime also have a tendency to get very preachy with the messages they are trying to get across. Despite the post apocalyptic settings both anime keep an artificial upbeat cheerful tone of hope rather than despair that you would expect in this kind of setting. Both shows also include a lot of humor.
Finally both of these show start off with rather pretty animation that slowly degrades as the series continue on.
If you're looking for cute girls trying to change the world with a positive message then try these titles.
Death and reincarnation are inescapable, but what happens in between? Without warning and without his memories, a boy who only recalls his last name - Otonashi - wakes up next to a girl named Yuri who offers him a gun and tells him to shoot an angel. Assuming it must be a misunderstanding, Otonashi is then almost killed by the angel and is drawn into Yuri's army to battle to delay the beginning of his next life. Immortality is within reach, but if Otonashi remembers how he died, will he keep fighting or allow himself to vanish?
Both of these anime cover death and the afterlife, albiet in a different way, fantastically. They both look beautiful and they both acoomplish incredible feels. The characters are fantastic and I really felt a connection with them even if I had nothing in common with them. Both Angel Beats and Sunday Without God are fantastic and definitely worth checking out.
